Star Spangled Picnic Quilted


I have quilted Star Spangled Picnic. I free-motioned stitched some fireworks on the top.


I used the decorative stitches on my machine for the tablecloth / ground. More fireworks. We really like fireworks in this neighborhood, and by "we," I mean the neighbors, and not Zeus.


I used wavy stitches for the flag.


The bird is carrying the E pluribus unum banner.


To add to the summer picnic theme, there are bicycles near the watermelon.


I thought I missed a week of reporting my fifteen minutes to stitch, but, oh my, it has been a month!  I'm pretty sure I managed to sew the required amount of time during the month. I finished making the top for On Ringo Lake, now known as Sorrento, put away all the fabric used in making this top, and started the Star Spangled Picnic. It just needs a binding and label.

The 15 minutes a day routine really seems to have helped you keep moving with your stitching. I love the quilting and the extra detail it has added to your bird block.
